paula broadwell who came to the attention of investigators leading to the unexpected discovery. law enforcement and multiple u.s. officials tell nbc news e-mails between general petraeus and broadwell indicated an extramarital affair. this on the heels of the presidential election, bound to raise lots of questions. we have two reports starting with nbc's andrea mitchell who andrea, good evening. >> good evening. the scandal that's shaken the national intelligence world began with a complaint to the fbi that didn't even mention david petraeus and didn't reach the white house until after the election. general d from the highest levels of government service after acknowledging what he called unacceptable behavior. an extramarital affair exposed by a cascading series of events sources say started with a seemingly unrelated complaint to the fbi. triggered by e-mails from petraeus's biographer paula broadwell to another woman not related to petraeus who felt she was being harassed and complained to!.e the fbi. officials say in recent weeks the fbi traced the e-mails to broadwell and stum
that uncovered the affair between david petraeus and paula broadwell. a search of broadwell's computer files turned up intimate e-mails with petraeus, and also revealed she may have mishandled some classified information that she'd collected for her book. but law enforcement officials say the investigation never uncovered a threat to national security. an f.b.i. director robert mueller, told congressional intelligence committee leaders today that was the primary reason they were not briefed on the investigation. the white house wasn't told until after the election. the president said the f.b.i. was following its own guidelines and he'd withhold judgment on the delayed notification. >> it is also possible that had we been told, then you'd be sitting here asking a question about why were you interfering in a criminal investigation? >> reporter: no one has been charged in case with a crime but late today the army did suspend paula broadwell's security clearance. scott. >> pelley: thanks, bob. the air force said today it is pulling jill kelly's gate pass for mcgill air force base. she was appare

, did gen. petraeus mysteries, paula broadwell, expose classified information about the benghazi attack? i should tell you that cnn is now reporting that the fbi is at the broadwell house in north carolina right now. that being reported by cnn. fox news national security correspondent, jennifer griffin, is here with the latest. jennifer. >> it's interesting the fbi is there, greta, because they had already check her computer, her home computer. so it's interesting that they are look for more apparently. so this is an investigation that led to the downfall of petraeus comes at a time that hill members are returning to town and we are hoping to get some answer was benghazi from petraeus himself. and in closed briefings this thursday. that's not going to happen. close family friends say petraeus is deeply embarrassed and devastated by the sex scandal. further in the process of its investigation the fbi found classified documents on broadwell's computer. remember she spent a year in afghanistan with him and has a security clearance as a reserve military intelligence officer. those documents
on again, my discussions with him, he has not provided paula broadwell or anyone with information, classified information that they shouldn't have. >> has he had any conversation or contact with paula broadwell in the last few days? >> last few days, i'm not aware of any. she, up until everything that came out with the news, i'm sure she was still working on her dissertation. there was some potential contact back and forth over a little bit of time about that. you have to imagine somebody who is doing their dissertation is not going to just give up that entire body of work and research very easily. >> what about jill kelley? how do you describe david petraeus' relationship with her? >> i think very simply as close personal friends of not only david petraeus but of his wife, holly, as well. they met the kelleys not too long after they arrived at tampa, mcdill air force base, home of u.s. central command, where he became the commander october 31st, 2008. my understanding is that the kelleys hosted a dinner not too long after they arrived and took command to start introducing him to
a report-- the only paula broadwell question i have -- two of them, actually. was this cia annex a detention, interrogation site as she suggested? she seemed confident when she said it. >> well, i tell you, everything you said about general petraeus is true. we were losing in iraq, he turned it around. he got us back on good footing in afghanistan that i think the president has made poor decisions on iraq and afghanistan, in spite of great military leadership. but general petraeus supposedly told the house intelligence and senate intelligence committee a couple of days after the attack, he thought it was the result of a radio. he needs to testify. secretary clinton needs to testify. august 15, ambassador stevens sent a cable from libya to the state department, to secretary clinton saying, we have identified 10 militia groups associated with al qaeda in benghazi, they are all over the place. if there is a coordinated attack, we can't defend the consulate. so she needs to account for why she did not grant the security request. we need to hear from all of these people. the way the c
. >> and on the paula broadwell end of things, where does that relationship stand with general petraeus? are they still friends? are they talking? have they talked? >> well, i would imagine, for legal reasons, they probably shouldn't be talking right now. it is the case that when the affair ended in the summer, they continued to stay in close contact. paula broadwell is still working on a dissertation in london that is centered on general petraeus' leadership and command style. so they were seen publicly and had lots of contact before the affair, during the affair and after the affair. in fact, her book and her masters thesis before that and her dissertation afterward were sort of what the intelligence people would call cover for presence and cover for action. they were going to be together a lot either way. in that way, that didn't raise eyebrows. >> bart gelman who has got the cover story on "time" magazine. bart, thanks for coming on and sharing with us this morning. >>> we've got a lot more coming up. including more reaction from are the senate. and also that business meeting that the president has

. they confirm to cnn that the investigators have been exploring tips on an affair with paula broadwell, his biographer. they tried to see if there was a potential security risk, in other words to see if petraeus could possibly be black mailed. petraeus is a highly respected, retired four-star general who commanded forces in both iraq and afghanistan. he was sworn in to run the cia a little over a year ago with vice president biden with his wife holly at his side. that was the swearing in. they've been married 35 years, have two grown kids. so how will this revelation exact the u.s. intelligence community? joining me now is fran townsend and bob baer and suzanne kelly. suzanne, what more can you tell us about the probe into the relationship with paula broadwell? do we know how long this has been going on? >> we don't know how long it was going on, but just the -- so they're the ones that would look into accusations of inappropriate access to classified information. individuals that hold clearances, are they doing what they need to be doing to make sure that information stays safe? is there a
